This is the perfect time of the year to get out and explore Gilbert’s downtown Heritage District. Still retaining its small town charm, this fast growing district offers a really walkable Main Street that is home to a burgeoning food scene. Lunch is on self at the restaurant your choice, and with culinary powerhouses lining the street, there is sure to be something wonderful for everyone. After lunch we’ll take a short ride to Gilbert’s Water Ranch, a 110 acre riparian preserve that is home to 298 species of birds, along with various fish, reptiles and mammals. Easy trails lope through the park, edging up to bird viewing blinds established along the pond, while a floating boardwalk offers a close encounter with fish and ducks. Take a little time to explore the park, or settle into our picnic area with a hot cup of coffee and a slice of cake, included. This is a fun and affordable tour. Don’t miss it!
